In the era of virtual education and online teaching, educators around the globe are in front of a really wide range of tools they can use in their courses. It is critical, yet too hard, to always stay up-to-date and be aware of all those resources. Inspired by the HN Tools of Trade, 2014 Edition, I decided to create a similar repository on Github with a list of tools and resources for every teacher out there.

If you are familiar with Github, go star it, fork it and add your own tools of trade. It's hosted on Github for a reason. Please submit pull requests.
